Hey PB Abbate North Carolina!
My name is Emma Thompson, and I am your PBA NC chapter captain. I am stoked to meet you all in person, but in the meantime, drop your intro in this forum so we can get to know everybody.
So a little about me…I grew up in Minneapolis, MN before going to Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. In 2016, I commissioned in the Marine Corps and became a Communication Strategy officer. I just finished the USMC’s graduate education program at San Diego State, and PCSed to II MEF on Camp Lejeune, NC.
I spend my free time doing anything and everything outside – mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, camping, running, and surfing. I love the beach, and go there with my dog almost every day! I train Muay Thai, and dabble in boxing and bjj. I also am passionate about psychology, philosophy, reading, live music, and coffee.
Being a part of Patrol Base Abbate means a lot to me, and I hope to share this passion with you all as we honor Sgt. Matthew Abbate and the many other warriors who went before us. I look forward to hearing from and meeting you! Welcome to our tribe!
